We describe a patient with multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MR), who presented with 2 different clinical types of lesions. Some were characteristic for MR in that they were deeply set, small, firm papules. Many others were larger, soft, and even sessile, like neurofibromas. Histopathologic features of both types of lesions revealed MR. To our knowledge, this is the first report of lesions of MR mimicking neurofibromas. (J Am Acad Dermatol 2001;44:373-5.)
